The Inspector extension is available only in ArcFM Viewer for ArcGIS Engine. It allows the user to edit non-spatial attributes, and create, update, and delete related objects in the field. This implementation also includes the ability to place redline graphics (either as simple graphics or as annotation). The Inspector tool makes it easy for mobile users to perform inspections (e.g., pole inspections) and manage related objects.

Required Licenses in the Field: Inspector Extension and ArcFM Viewer for ArcGIS Engine

Field Databases: Backdrop, Login (optional), Session Manager

Perform the following steps to configure Inspector.

STEP 1: Set Up Directory Structure

Mobile Directory Permissions

Geodatabase Replication Directory Permissions

Update Replication Service Login

STEP 2: Configure Graphic Annotation

Optional. Perform this configuration if you wish to store graphics in an annotation layer.

STEP 3: Create Backdrop Database

Configure Inspector

Create/Import Graphic Favorites Optional. Do this step ONLY if you do not have a Login database.

OPTIONAL: Create Login Database

The Login database is necessary only if you wish to provide the field user with user/system favorites. If you aren't using favorites, there's no need for the Login database. If you have no login database, graphic favorites can be imported into the Backdrop.

STEP 4: Create Session Manager Databases

Configure Enterprise Process Framework Database

Configure Field Process Framework Database

IMPORTANT: Step 5 includes how to create a Process Framework replica that sends/receives sessions and designs. Step 6 discusses how to set up the Mobile Synchronizer. You need only one of these methods. If you elect to use the Mobile Synchronizer for sending/receiving, then you may still want to review the Create Replicas step in case you wish to use Geodatabase Replication to maintain your backdrop database in the field.
